Horror Writers Association

Every little girl has a dream. For some it is to own a pony or win a beauty pageant. Mine was to become a member of the Horror Writer's Association.

Finally, that day has come.

Thanks to my publications in Necrotic Tissue and the forthcoming Sonar 4 Anthology, I have qualified for associate membership in the HWA (does that make me a AMHWA?). I can't describe to you the thrill of being in the same organisation as, among others, Dean Koontz, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson and Stephen King. I've been wriggling, giggling, squirming and jumping with delight ever since I heard the good news.

Now to get the book deal that will qualify me for full membership. Better write the book first, I guess!

Seriously, to be part of that elect and select group is a wonderful achievement and I hope you celebrate it appropriately

Sorry, Anon, I think it's from Wayne's World.

I'd like to become a member too - can you sponser me in??? :)

Ok, guess I better get published first...

Congrats on becoming a member, btw, Inky!

Thanks Anon. DNOTY2007 is right, it is from Wayne's World, but I appreciate the sentiment.

Thanks DNOTY2007. I don't think I need to sponser you, I think you will get in no problem on your own merit.
